Review - Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps

In my last haul I showed you some nail wraps that I picked up in the ASOS sale.
Nail Rock Desinger Nail Wraps
£3.95 - down from £6.70

These are a cheaper alternative to minx nails that you can apply with a hair dryer. I was really looking forward to trying these, but sadly was not impressed.

They were quite easy to apply, there's lots of different sizes in the pack and you just need to trim them to size.  Easy enough!
You then need to apply the heat with a hair dryer, but they just wouldn't stick! I spent so long trying to get them to stick, and when they finally did I just wasn't impressed with how they looked. It just looked tacky and cheap, and it felt like they were going to peel off.

I wore them to work all day, and this was the result at the end of the day.

I was down to 1 nail - bad times! I work in an office, so it's not like my hands are particularly put through hell during an average day. The edges just kept peeling up and it drove me mad! One of the men in my office also asked me why I had stickers on my nails, not good.

I'm not sure whether my application was just plain rubbish, but I did spend quite a lot of time following the instructions and applying the heat. Either way, it boasts to be quick and easy which it certainly was not so unless your some kind of nail wrap whiz I would steer clear of these wraps.

Has anyone else ever tried these? Are there any other nail wraps that are better than these?
